Read on to see 5 of our favorites from around the country. Bonus points for spotting a TRUBLUE!
The Milwaukee Brewers’ stadium, Miller Park, includes this 25-foot rock wall modeled after a can of Mountain Dew on the Dew Deck. Open since 2013, the wall is managed by Adventure Rock of Brookfield, Wisconsin and is open during every Brewers home game to guests on the Dew Deck. The Brewers’ Dew wall is said to be the first permanent wall in a Major League Baseball stadium.
